Cessna offers heat-reflecting paint for Turbo Stationair

OSHKOSH — Cessna debuted its new Night Sky edition of the Turbo Stationair at this week’s AirVenture.

This limited edition of the Cessna Turbo Stationair features a black and red paint scheme that includes a new surface coating capable of reflecting most infrared solar heat. The Night Sky edition Turbo Stationair also includes a specially-painted McCauley propeller to complement the paint scheme.

The coating used in the Night Sky edition of the Turbo Stationair is provided by Netherlands-based AkzoNobel N.V., one of the world’s largest paint and coatings company. The solar heat reflective coating (SHR) uses an integrated technology that allows for darker paint to be used on non-traditional surfaces of the aircraft, such as the wings, Cessna officials said.

Only a limited number of Turbo Stationair units will be manufactured with the Night Sky package, company officials add.
